Gorgeous and stunning antique silver Victorian style mesh bead bag. It is my understanding this is a chatelaine mesh gatetop purse worn around the 1900's.
The bag has a few issues, namely the clasp doesn't appear to close securely and the material is loose at the bottom of the silver in one area. You can see in the pictures and I believe this can be easily repaired, but will leave to new owner. There are initals at the gatetop, but they are scrolled and hard to read. The material looks crocheted black with silver beads. All the beads appear to be there and I see no holes in the crochet.Measurements approximate nearly 1 inch across when closed, nearly 2 inches when wide open and 5.25 inches high with fringed beads on the bottom. There is also an attached ring with etching. This is a lovely piece of history.
